Hi Graham, hi Mats,

sorry for not having answered for a few days, I have been pretty busy
learning how to use NSIS -- besides I haven't slept nor eaten for the
last three days, so I guess a short holiday will be appreciated now :)

It's an interesting question. I have mixed feelings here, so i'm
looking forward to see what will be decided.

??? AFAIK I didn't delete any example in the patch I sent you; my
whole point was precisely to *add* explanations and examples.

Frankly, this was just a wild shot. I much prefer to wait for a few
months; plus I'm convinced that the GDP helpers will probably have
better ideas.
For now, I'll just focus on the LSR again (John had talked about
localizing it; I'll write him to see if he's still willing to do it).

Oh yes; sorry for not having noticed it.

By the way, what's the final call for renaming \times into \tuplet? (if any)

Cheers,
